of this continuing crisis hardly merit notice. barack obama pledges change but touts dodd-frank, a bulky, watered-down version of financial reform that scarcely makes a ripple in the vast sea of corruption and abuse. mitt romney campaigns as the banker's pal and says he'll make dodd- frank disappear altogether. if you're appalled by this, so is the man who held the thankless job of special inspector general in charge of policing tarp, the bailout's troubled asset relief plan. before he signed on, neil barofsky was a federal prosecutor in new york chasing white-collar criminals and drug lords. he busted 50 members of a columbian guerrilla group deeply involved in narcotics trafficking. at tarp, he was assigned to ferret out waste, fraud and abuse. the banks didn't make it easy, and neither did the u.s. government. neil barofsky tells this story in his book, "bailout: an inside account of how washington abandoned main street while rescuing wall street." he is now a senior fellow and adjunct professor at the new york university school of law. neil barofsky, welcome. >> thank you. >> when you were a

(crowd cheering) (crowd chanting): yes we can! >> mitt romney, fresh from running the winter olympics... >> narrator: just three weeks after the olympics ended in march of 20
time since 1917. >> we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of the military changed. >> president obama's sharp rhetort. >> we have aircraft carriers where planes land on them january ships that go under water and nuclear sub marines. >> this attracted most of the attention. the real threat to the military budget is the controversial bill which congress passed and the president signed into law last year to confront the nation's looming $16 trillion debt. the law requires automatic across-the-board cuts on january 2, 2013 that will slash billions from the defense budget. in battleground states like, virginia, where as many as one in four adults work for defense contractors, which build enormous sub marines like the minnesota which is about to be christened these defense cuts could mean as many as 200,000 jobs. it was designed to be so bad we would never get to this point. mike is ceo for huntington ingalls industry. with 37,000 employees in virginia, mississippi, laz and california it is the largest u.s. naval ship builder. >> all of the usual is suspects are saying a

[cheers and applause] of all things we know about mitt romney, leadership comes to mind. one of my favorite historians passed away a couple weeks ago. he said the great characteristics of a leader, a common theme of leaders to step up to the plate to help other countries in times of need had these four characteristics. a moral
and talks about tax cuts and obama care and the whole panopoly of issues. then mentally he changed -- he is in different tone and emphasis at the least. the question that the press seems to be asking is, is it working? >> i think it's twofold -- >> it probably is -- >> is that the only question that journalists should be asking? >> no. i think matt's saying, it may be working, but again, from my perspective, you get to a certain point where you change your story so much as a politician that you have to -- and frankly, i would go so far as to say, you know, romney putting out ads talking about obama's apology tour or -- or today on the auto bailout where he's fundamentally changing his story 180 degrees. and you have to ask, is there a character question involved? even with obama, look, i wasn't happy four years -- i forget what it was, a main issue that he had flip-flopped on. it was a main issue i was ticked about. i think like there's so much going with romney that it's fair to ask, is there some being this guy's character that is wrong. >> i've intuitively believed that mitt romney is

. king, are you planning to sue -- you said you wanted to sue president obama over the change in policy that young people would not be deported. >> he violated the constitution like gov. vilsack, he cannot do that with memorandum, and this was bogging people down. >> where do you stand on that? >> in the process? there are plaintiffs who won't come on until after the election. i will hold the suit up until after the election and we will get the suit filed. >> the answer is -- we wouldn't have this issue if congress had done their job. one branch doesn't work well and another steps in. i think the president took a necessary step. >> we will see a couple of commercials right now, the first from mrs. vilsack's campiagn. >> i am christie vilsack and i approve this message. ♪ >> mr. king, mrs. vilsack has called you an embarassment to iowa. do some of the quotes embarrass you? >> i've said by the time i eliminated the questions and dishonesty, the only thing left was "i'm christie vilsack and i approve this message." the one that is true, was about the vote on hurricane katrina. there will

stagnation of the obama administration and the big change of the romney ryan ticket is promising. watch. >> this is a turning point for america, and we need to take a different course, that we cannot stay on the course we're on. i happen to think that the american people understand we need dramatic and real change if we're going to have a bright and prosperous future for us. >> look, we believe in the principles that built this country. we believe in liberty, freedom, free enterprise, self-determination and government working for us and not the other way around. >> no question that there is growing enthusiasm in the republican events as romney and ryan are crisscrossing the country particularly in the battle ground states. they have now nine days left and they recognize that the ground game is critically important. the storm does threaten that and mr. romney had to reschedule, canceling to virginia to be here in ohio and a series of cascading dominoes, the obama campaign and romney campaign had to essential i put the next three days of campaigning on hold because of sandy. and there are
